"Sister is probably the most competitive relationship within the family, but once the sisters are grown, it becomes the strongest relationship."

~ Margaret Mead (supposedly)

 

Forty years ago, my big sister held me captive under a nest of Daddy Long Leg spiders after poking it into a vibrating frenzy. Then she chased me around the yard with one of those spiders, threatening to put it on me.

 

Today, she bailed me out of a jam, spending most of the morning helping me with my accounting homework.

 

All I can say is, sisters are awesome.

 

And in other news, accounting sucks.
